Re: Manic Monday

  • Weekend highs: Jeff and I were really tired before bed last night but somehow we needed up singing "Nice and Slow" - Usher... I think we got to the rap part that I only remembered they first few lines.  I haven't laughed so hard in FOREVER!  Also my wine Saturday night.  Thank you Olive Garden for 25 cent samples!

    Weekend Lows:  Jeff has been poopy.  He also apoligizes afterwards, but he needs to find a job soon and stop taking it out on me!

  • Highs- Lots of time with my boys and we saw the new baby and went to see the new Hunger Games movie Saturday afternoon.

    Lows - The entire rest of the weekend. Friday I had to take the day off because our plumbing was all messed up and we were worried there was a problem with the septic. Of course Im freaking out because we are expecting a home inspection sometime this week. So after the plumber, and septic company and $300, we just needed the tank pumped. Which we do every other year religiously. My washing machine died and we bought a new one that uses way more water than the old one and after an epic laundry marathon, it flooded the tank and backed up into the house.

    Also on Friday on the way to see the baby, I got the email that our contract fell through. We agreed to all her terms, but then she changed her mind and went back to her orginial offer which had us bringing thousands to the table. We have been going back and forth with the possiblility of just doing to so we can start over already.

    Then last night I get a call that my uncles house is on fire. 10 years after we lost my grandfather to a house fire, his sons house catches fire. Everyone is fine, but it was still a terrifying 10 minutes until I could get to the scene. 6 fire trucks, 2 ambulances in the street and 2 more fire trucks up the 1/4 mile long drive way were a bit overkill. But thankfully my little brother was first on scene and ran it like a champ in his camo pj pants, camo duck boots, fire jacket and helmet. A bit of damage, but my uncle got most of the fire inside the house out with fire extinguishers.

    Then I get to work today and DH calls me looking for his keys that I find in my purse. So I had to drive all the way back home to give him his keys.

    It cant get worse right now right?

    Lows: not getting nearly as much cleaning or decorating done as I wanted too

  • Highs- We won our entire football pool! Greg picked the Saints on Thursday to win and the remaining 4 people all picked the Lions, and the Lions lost. We are so freaking happy. Also, being able to go out without the kids for a few hours. Oh yeah, MY COUCHES ARE ALL IN THEIR APPROPRIATE SPOTS.

    Lows- Having to spend Saturday morning chasing a bird out of my moms house. This weather is effing horrible and I really don't want any snow right now.

  • @Mrs.Skiz - I'm so sorry!! What an awful weekend. Let's get a drink! (or two.. or seven)

    Highs - I got A LOT done.

    Lows - I was really mean to H this weekend. I didn't mean to be but he was in my way a lot this weekend and it was just driving me crazy. I asked him to pack his closet (which is really only half a closet because he keeps his clothes in T's room so T has the other half of the closet). It took him 2 and a half hours and he still left a ton of stuff in there. What don't you understand about "we are moving on SATURDAY"?! Then we went to my SIL's to get more boxes and he's telling my ILs about how we've been "packing all morning". Uh no. I'VE been packing all morning while singing songs to the baby and trying to keep him out of my boxes. You've been playing on your phone. I swear. I need a wife.

    High - Our niece turned 1 and was so stinkin' cute opening her presents!  We decorated the house for Christmas yesterday and that just put me in a fantastic mood.

    Low - There was a little family drama surrounding the 1st birthday celebration (same old, same old...).  And H got a little grumpy because we had to buy all new lights for the tree.  Nothing sipping a little Bailey's while trimming couldn't cure, though!  Oh, and the wind was out of control Sunday morning!  Some of our outdoor furniture flew across the deck.  There's not any damage, but that wasn't a fun sound to wake up to.
  • Highs: We went to the Please Touch Museum. So much fun!

    Lows: My ILs came Saturday night- just annoying.

    @queensteph17 what did you make/buy them for dinner?
  • Highs...Was a pretty relaxing weekend.  DH was so nice it deserved its own post.

    Lows...the freaking freezing weather. The average temp for this time of the year is 53.  But of course we have to set low records since the pool hasn't been closed yet.  DH and I were outside at 11:20 on Saturday night doing some extra stuff to the pool to make sure shit didn't freeze.  They are coming to close it tomorrow.

  • I've made that same recipe, but instead if tortellini, I used ziti noodles. I may have to switch it up. Every time I make it, I basically eat the leftovers for every meal the next day. I'm going to try the tortellini next time!

    @janma529 you could do it without the alfredo, it just might taste a little different!
  • @amccul20 - Any thoughts on what a good substitute might be? 
  • Mrs.Skiz said:
    @janma529 its the dairy that bothers you right?
    Not exactly.  I can drink milkshakes like a champ!  I think it's the combination of heavy cream and high fat.  Usually super creamy soups (i.e. bisques) bother me, too.

    Hmm...the point of the alfredo is to make it creamy, so I don't see a viable substitute. Maybe just use tortellini and do it baked with just the red sauce- maybe throw a lot of cheese in with the pasta. It will be more of a baked pasta than a creamy, but it will still be good.


  • I've done pasta dishes before where I've added cream to some manner of tomato product (I'd tell you exactly, but Pinterest does not seem to be working...) and I was fine with that.  So maybe I could just try cream..?

    Funny you say that. I just had a conversation with our RD here in my office and my mom was questioning her about gallbladder issues. My mom also suffers from intermitant IBS. The RD said that the high fats like those in heavy creams, are hard for the body to digest in general because your gallbladder only produces a certian amount of bile to digest any foods. The rest sits in your stomach for up to 12 hours, which is what causes your body to absorb the fats and salts and makes most people gain the weight they do. 

    I think because you eat a healthier diet, when you eat those high fat foods, your galbladder doesnt have the ability to produce the higher amount of bile that is needed to digest everything. Just a thought.

    I know when I really focus on eating healthy, one quick fast food meal and I feel like hell.

  • Can you do cream cheese? I know people put that into dishes to help with the creaminess.
